Hello! I love parties; well, that's not entirely true, I don't like parties that have me as the center of attention because, well, I really hate being the center of attention. Weird, I know. I felt so awkward at my wedding; the photographer kept asking me to pose and was taking pictures and I was like, don't you have other things to be taking pictures of? Two years and a couple months later my husband and I still haven't looked at our wedding photos (we both think we look awkward in pictures) so...there you go.
But! Parties! For VIB Rouges! Because we spend so much money. It feels good to be recognized, even if it's for a sad, shallow reason. This is the second Sephora party I've been to and it was just as fun as the first one! This time they had reps from Tarte and Dior (and one other brand which I think was Benefit but I can't remember) and while there wasn't a discount (last time it was during "Chic Week" and we had 20% off ALL THE THINGS) there was 4x bonus points for Rouges. Nice. I hung out, ate some free snacks, played with some makeup, and bought some things. Which I'll show you! I also bought some things from other stores, so I'll show those to you, too!
One of the perks of going to the party was that you got a bag of samples with any $35+ purchase! I went in with the intention of just buying approximately $35 worth of stuff, but the longer I stayed and shopped, the more I put in my basket.
As I said, I went to the party with the intention of making a purchase as close as possible to the $35 to get the sample bag and I really only intended to get one item: a foundation. But then I bought more!
And...then I bought some stuff from an actual Sephora store! Technically, a Sephora in JCP store since they have really good sales and I love popping in there and checking out the nail polish selection (they always have Formula X polishes on sale). They had some of the Sephora in JCP exclusive Summer Stashes on sale for $25 so...if you're interested in that, go check it out.
Now for some random things I got from random places. From Sally Beauty Supply I got...
I also got some neat stuff from Target! Target is really stepping up its beauty game and they always have some pretty awesome stuff on sale.
Since I had some points built up, I bought some things from Ulta!
AND THAT'S EVERYTHING. I thought this haul would be pretty short since it started out just being the Sephora VIB Rouge party things but, you know how it is. It all snowballs. Anyways! If you read this all, you are awesome and I really appreciate it!
Thanks for reading! <3
